ELIGIBILITY

Refers to the process whereby an individual is determined to be eligible for health care coverage through the Medicaid program. Eligibility is determined by the State. Eligibility data are collected and managed by the State or by its Fiscal Agent. In some managed care waiver programs, eligibility records are updated by an Enrollment Broker, who assists the individual in choosing a managed care plan to enroll in.
